Notes: Peppermint Shrimp will eat the parasitic anemone Aiptasia and help to prevent the spread of it. It is a peaceful aquarium inhabitant and will not bother other reef inhabitants, including other shrimp. Multiple specimens may be kept together in the same aquarium. Providing additions of iodine will help the shrimp during molting.
Some predatory fish such as Hawkfish, Lionfish, Triggers, Puffers, and large Wrasses may eat the Fire Shrimp.
